Lynn Rice, Writer & Editor
Owner, The Edit Store
Over 30 years of writing and editing experience for corporate and individual clients, primarily focused on human interest, business practices, business development and marketing strategy, plus personality features and business profiles. Industries served include:
- Restaurant operations and marketing
- Digital imaging
- Outdoor recreation
- Golf instruction
- Small business ownership
Author of two novels (thrillers) and multiple short stories.
My career began in daily newspapers (you remember them, right?) and moved into magazine editing and marketing campaign development. That means I'm well versed in developing everything from enewsletters to engaging product launch materials and extensive PR kits. That same background means I can (and have) written and edited materials on a wide range of topics. Articles have appeared in print and on line.
As an advanced user of Adobe CS software I can also provide design services, pre-flighting and production management, including ebook development.
I studied and wrote under novelist Jack Bickham and can provide professional proofreading, editing and developmental editing for fiction and narrative non-fiction manuscripts. As a finalist in the 2010 Clive Cussler Adventure Writers Competition and a first-round judge for the 2012 Competition, I have the insight to help tighten a story's concept and bring the manuscript to submission-ready status.
I'm passionate about good writing, and I'm a tenacious editor.
